Almost 20,000 people are watching a Periscope livestream of a large puddle, fascinated by attempts of passers-by to cross the body of water.
The livestream has gone viral and almost 20,000 people are currently watching the stream by social media agency Drummond Central.
The stream has received over 80,000 hearts since it began a few hours ago.
It began innocently, with users entertained by workers attempting to jump over the pool of water to get to the bridge beyond, but it has escalated into those nearby bringing surfboards and inflatable pool toys to the puddle to feature on the stream.
One good Samaritan brought a 'caution, wet floor' sign and placed it in the middle of the pool.
#DrummondPuddleWatch is trending on Twitter.
The emergence of people acting up to the camera belies that the stream could possibly be a PR stunt by the agency to prove their 'viral' chops.
Many of those near the puddle are now waving to the stream as word of it's online popularity is spreading.

The number of people watching briefly jumped to 36,000 after stagnating at 19,000 for a time - it's possible the popularity of the stream is playing havoc with the counter.
